I was wondering if anyone here on these boards that use graphics that belong to others such as EA graphics... how many have accually gotten approval to use the graphics in their banners?? Also, as of late.. I have seen a few very offensive banners on here lately. I am wondering why does Stratics not screen any banners before they are allowed to post them or use them? The reason why I ask this is because I am a domain owner several times over. I get upset if someone stole my graphics off of my sites and used them without permission. One time someone accually mirrored one of my domains and I was able to get that site taken down. The person that mirrored my site did write a letter and ask to "borrow" some of my graphics. I gave him permisison for a limited amount of time. After that time he needs to write and ask again if he can mirror my site and use my graphics. Am I a weird one or what? I decided to use EA graphics in my banner after I stopped useing my 9/11 banner. I first sent my banner to EA for approval.. then to Stratics in 2001. Yes. My banner was approved by EA and Stratics before I started useing it in my posts. Yeah.. I know.
